Neptunia character designer departs Idea Factory to go freelance

Tsunako to continue working on Idea Factory titles, however.


Tsuanko, who is known for her work as character designer on properties such as Neptunia and Date A Live, has left Idea Factory and gone freelance, the illustrator confirmed.

In a post on her blog, Tsunako said she will be moving next year due to various circumstances such as to be closer to family whose health is less than ideal, which will make it difficult to continue her work in the city. However, she will continue to work on Idea Factory / Compile Heart titles as a freelance illustrator.
